Low Voltage Post Top and Column Mount Lantern Installation

Whether you want to add an element of ambience to your client’s outdoor living area or safety and security, post top and column mount lanterns are a great add on.  We carry a wide variety of exterior lighting product lines such as Hinkley, Minka Lavery, Maxim, Kichler, Quoizel and Arroyo Craftsman

Our customers often ask if we offer 12 volt post top or column mount lanterns.  We are happy to answer that any post top or column mount lantern with a medium base (A19 – or Edison screw base) socket or the smaller candelabra base socket may be installed with a low voltage 12 volt system or simply alone.

The secret is that the lantern socket solely depends on the voltage of the lamp installed and the voltage to the lamps.  There is no need for a “conversion kit” to turn a 120v fixture into a 12 volt powered fixture. 

12v Post Top and Column Mount Lantern Lamp Choices

If you are installing a lantern and want it to operate as a 12 volt system, you would first choose a 12v incandescent or LED lamp to fit the lantern socket type (medium base or candelabra).  There are various wattage output options available and in stock at Cascade. The next step is to connect the lantern wire leads to the proper direct burial low voltage cable size (to fit the job) and then connect the cable to a professional grade magnetic landscape transformer. 

You have the option of powering a lantern alone or wiring it in with a complete landscape lighting system.  In the event of a stand alone post and lantern set up, a12v photocell is available as well as a small transformer to complete your system.
